Donald Trump has begun his second day of a visit to Paris, France tweeting about Obama care. The commander in chief, who is in the French capital for their Bastille Day celebration, said Vice President Mike Pence was ´working hard´ on ´HealthCare´ before describing Republican senators as ´wonderful´. Trump then suggested the senators were going to ´do what is right for the people´. Earlier he claimed those same senators ´must´ support his plan ´after all these years of suffering "thru" [sic] ObamaCare´. Trump said he would be sitting at his desk ´pen in hand´ to sign the replacement for the Affordable Health
I think we need a new slogan for 2018: DUMP THE DINOSAURS! That would be any congressperson/senator over the age of 75. I´m sorry, not to be bias against age but against roots that go so deep in Washington they don´t even know they represent real people anymore.
The bumperstickers could be state specific--post the picture of your state´s dinosaurs on each one. I´ve had it with the McCains, Feinstein (my personal dinosaur--although word has it she´s retiring to the pasture for old dinosaurs), Pelosi (she´s got to be close)...You know your dinosaur. It could just be anyone who doesn´t understand the 18th century, Constitutional basis for government. These people only understand power and greed.
So sad when a representative government doesn´t understand what "representative" means.
Obamacare is, in the words of our illustrious President Trump, a disaster. The only reason these fools are preserving it is because they own stock in it--even the Republicans, they don´t have to live under it either!
A retired chief of the Australian Defence Force has claimed Australia will soon be invaded, warning of the increasing tensions in the Asia-Pacific region. Admiral Chris Barrie has said the conflict happening now is similar to the conditions that led to World War 1. ´Australia is plunging headlong into catastrophe and we are utterly unprepared,´ he said in an analysis published by ABC News. ´The time-bomb is ticking and it will explode in our lifetimes.´ The parallels with First World War - Britain the dominant power, Germany the rising and aggressive challenger - are obvious. So too today with the United States and China.
A few days ago we spoke about President Trump’s style of leadership, which is to keep your opponents guessing. Never tell what you plan to do next. That was about the “settlements” and Trump’s advice to Israel to build but to quit yapping about it ahead of time... which only energizes Israel’s enemies. Tipping your hand is the worst sort of diplomacy whether it’s poker or politics – and now let’s talk about moving the United States Embassy to Jerusalem. My guess – and actually it’s more than a guess – is that President Trump will get it done. But he will get
A tsunami warning has been issued for Alaska´s Aleutian Islands after a powerful 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit the Bering Sea between the US and Russia. The earthquake struck between the tip of the Aleutian Islands and Russia´s Kamchatkaat 1.34 on Tuesday local time , according to the US Geological Survey. The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said ´hazardous tsunami waves were possible for coasts within 186 miles of the earthquake epicentre.´ agnitude earthquake The earthquake struck some 125 miles from the city of Nikol´skoye on Bering island off the Kamchatka Peninsula. The epicentre was west of Attu, the westernmost and largest island in the
The State Department is expanding its definition of ´close family´ to include grandparents and other relatives that constitute a bona fide U.S. relationship for visa applicants and refugees from six mainly Muslim nations. In response to a federal judge´s order last week, the department on Monday instructed U.S. diplomats to consider grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts and uncles, nephews and nieces and first cousins to meet the criteria for applicants from the six countries to receive a U.S. visa. Those had been omitted by the department after the Supreme Court partially upheld the Trump administration´s travel ban in June. Under the rules applicants
Manchester mosque has been significantly damaged in a suspected overnight arson attack. The Manchester Nasfat Islamic Centre on Droylsden Road caught fire late on Sunday night. Emergency services were called at around 11.40pm and around 30 firefighters worked to tackle the blaze, which is now being treated as suspicious. Images taken by witnesses show flames coming from the roof of the building, lighting up the sky and surrounding houses. A spokesman for the centre said there was no one inside at the time, and that they received a call in the night to say ´it was being attacked´. The exact cause of the
The US doctor who wants to save Charlie Gard has jetted into the UK and has gone straight to Great Ormond Street Hospital to examine him today. Dr Michio Hirano believes he can help the little boy with experimental nucleoside drugs and travelled to London overnight at a High Court judge´s invitation. The Harvard-educated doctor, from Columbia University Medical Centre in New York, will see Charlie today and then meet Great Ormond Street doctors on Tuesday to argue for the experimental therapy he claims has a 56 per cent of success. Two doctors, Dr Hirano and one who cannot be
There are a thousand reasons why I loved the Rebbe. Alongside his warmth and Torah wisdom, he was also sagely up to the minute on politics. Somewhere on YouTube (can’t find it now) I heard him talking about the “peace process” – the one from about 20 years ago – and decrying it with such passion and precision that it made you wonder why others can’t see things so clearly. I guess it’s because the Rebbe was the Rebbe just like Einstein was Einstein. The Rebbe said (quoting from the top of my head): “Israel is ready to give up holy Land
Two of Australia´s biggest breakfast cereal makers are no longer paying third-party companies to declare their products are fit for Muslims to eat. Kellogg´s and Sanitarium have declared there is no need to pay an Islamic business or charity to declare their products contain no pork or alcohol products. Nestle no longer has halal certification applied to its chocolate bars, including Kit Kat, unlike its rival Cadbury. However Nestle still pay halal fees for Milo, Magi noodles, Nescafe coffee, condensed milk and chilli sauces. Halal certification fees charged to food manufacturers fund Islamic schools, mosques and religious activities. Sanitarium, the
The Russian oligarch who reportedly involved in a plan to assist Donald Trump in last year´s election was named in the explosive ´dirty dossier´ about the president. Aras Agalarov, often called ´the Trump of Russia´ on account of his love of putting his name on buildings, was named in an email sent to Donald Trump Jr as one of the people working with the Russian government to help sway the election for Trump Sr. ´This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government´s support for Mr. Trump - helped along by Aras and Emin,´
The Senate will delay a vote initially scheduled for this coming week on repealing and replacing Obamacare after Arizona Senator John McCain announced Saturday he would not return to Washington for at least a week while he recovers from surgery. McCain will remain in Arizona next week to recuperate from a medical procedure that removed a 2-inch blood clot above his left eye, his office announced in a statement on Saturday. Soon after news of McCain´s surgery broke, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell´s office issued a statement announcing that he would ´defer´ a vote on the health care legislation. McCain´s absence
THE US House of Representatives has passed a bill calling for billions to be poured into the nation´s missile defence systems amid fears Kim Jong-un could use his newly developed weaponry to target military bases. The act will see $696 billion added to the US defence budget, with $12.5 billion earmarked for missile defence programmes. It comes amid concerns US military bases could be at risk if targeted by Kim Jong-un´s newly developed Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM´s). Earlier this week the hermit kingdom´s propaganda unit claimed the successful launch of a Hwasong 14 ICBM "fully demonstrated the will and capability of the
President Donald Trump fired off several tweets Saturday morning praising jobs and stock market growth despite the ´Russian hoax story´ drama. Trump, who is currently at his New Jersey golf club where the US Women´s Open is being played, tweeted: ´Stock Market at new all-time high! Working on new trade deals that will be great for U.S. and its workers!´ Moments later, he tweeted again: ´Stock Market hit another all-time high yesterday - despite the Russian hoax story! Also, jobs numbers are starting to look very good!´ His reference to the ´Russian hoax´ follows shocking revelations this past week about his son
Miami, a city of 430,000 people, could disappear within the century if the worst climate change predictions come true. New York Magazine´s David Wallace-Wells spoke with dozens of climatologists and researchers in related fields for an investigation on the outcomes of climate change if aggressive preventative action isn´t taken. The results were not pretty. (Snip) Within the century, a combination of polar melting, carbon emissions, and ice-sheet collapses could cause chronic flooding to wipe out Miami — and as many as 670 coastal communities, including Cambridge, Massachusetts; Oakland, California; St. Petersburg, Florida; and four of the five boroughs of New York City, according
Since Hillary Clinton’s unexpected loss to Donald Trump, her donors have strategized with Democratic leadership about how to revive the failing party. Billionaire George Soros held a closed door conference with wealthy donors in November 2016 that addressed how to “take back power” and was attended by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. On the weekend of Trump’s inauguration, David Brock hosted a retreat for the most prolific Democratic donors to figure out how to “kick Donald Trump’s a--.” On July 15, Page Six reported that Sen. Kamala Harris, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, met with top Clinton donors in the Hamptons. Many figures in Clinton’s inner circle attended, including Clinton’s
Susan Rice will no longer be appearing in front of the House committee on Tuesday to answer questions about her unmasking of Trump and his private associates. Rice was expected to give a testimony to the House committee probing her unmasking scandal. It has apparently been postponed. (Snip) As TGP previously reported, independent journalist, Mike Cernovich broke the Susan Rice unmasking story in early April. Cernovich reported via Medium: The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions.
The mainstream media’s silence over Klaus Eberwein’s death is deafening. Eberwein was a former Haitian government official who was expected to expose the extent of Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice next week. He has been found dead in Miami at the age of 50. The circumstances surrounding Eberwein’s death are also nothing less than unpalatable. According to Miami-Dade’s medical examiner records supervisor, the official cause of death is “gunshot to the head.“ Eberwein’s death has been registered as “suicide” by the government. But not long before his death, he acknowledged that his life was in danger because he was outspoken on
Ann Coulter´s series of tweets targeting Delta Airlines stretched into a second day on Sunday after the conservative author said she lost a prebooked "extra-room" seat on a flight. "The worst airline in America" she said in a tweet Saturday night. "Just when you think it´s safe to fly them again, the worst airline in America is STILL: @Delta," she added. [Tweet] Coulter said a flight attendant responded "I don´t know" when asked why the "extra-room seat I specifically booked" was given to another customer. Coulter then took a picture of the woman who was given the seat, and said
The condition for which Senator John McCain had surgery on Friday may be more serious than initial descriptions have implied, and it may delay his return to Washington by at least a week or two, medical experts said on Sunday. The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has already announced that votes on a bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act will not begin until Mr. McCain’s return. A statement released by Mr. McCain’s office on Saturday had suggested that he would be in Arizona recovering for just this week, but neurosurgeons interviewed said the typical recovery period could be longer.
Sens. Mike Lee and Jerry Moran jointly announced Monday night that they will oppose a vote to open debate on the Senate GOP´s healthcare bill, meaning Republicans currently do not have the votes to advance the legislation in its current form. Lee, R-Utah, and Moran, R-Kan., announced their opposition to the bill in tweets in which they cited one another, but they issued separate statements.With Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, already coming out against advancing the healthcare bill, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., no longer has the votes he needs to have least 50 of 52
The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has been accused of “slut-shaming” female players after introducing a new dress code that forbids plunging necklines, leggings or revealing skirts on the course. Reactions to the move by golf’s governing body have been overwhelmingly against it, with Teen Vogue, the influential youth magazine, saying the dress code had set women “way back”. In an email sent around by LPGA player president Vicki Goetze-Ackerman on July 2, players were warned that they would face a fine of $1000 if they breached the new dress code which comes into action on July 17.
Pensions: Even in normal years, the annual Social Security and Medicare trustees´ reports typically get overlooked. This year is far from normal. But the reports should be top of mind for anyone who cares about retirement security. The Social Security report finds that the "trust fund" will run out of money in just 17 years. The news only gets worse from there. The program´s unfunded liability over the next 75 years is now $12.5 trillion, which is up from $11.4 trillion last year and $4.7 trillion a decade ago. In other words, Social Security´s long-term unfunded liability has increased by 166% in
Former Vice President Al Gore condemned President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement in an interview Monday. “We’ve never had a president who´s deliberately made decisions the effect of which is tearing down America’s standing in the world,” Gore said on the "Today" show. The one-time Democratic presidential nominee also attacked Trump for “undermining our alliances” and damaging America’s reputation in “many ways.” Gore–who has spent most of his post-political career as a climate change activist–has occasionally weighed in on the president’s decisions. In December, during the
Subway wants to freshen up the look of its stores as it tries to stem a sales decline. The sandwich chain says the redesign - which includes a brighter atmosphere, displays of vegetables behind the counter and ordering tablets - is the first major revamp since the early 2000s. The changes will take place as stores around the country are remodeled and new ones are built. The makeover comes as Subway´s sales have fallen for four straight years amid competition from places including Jimmy John´s and Firehouse Subs. Since 2012, Subway´s average annual sales per store are down 13 percent
If any doubts remained that the Fox News channel is continuing to swerve from its conservative roots, they were erased on July 16, 2017 when Ezekiel Emanuel, M.D., a principal architect of Obamacare and a barely hinged spin doctor for the Democrat socialist left, appeared on the channel’s signature weekly program Fox News Sunday in his new role as a paid contributor. During the program, the ever arrogant Emanuel jumped on the Resist Trump bandwagon and suggested that President Trump is worthy of being impeached. Hired last February primarily as a health policy analyst (he is a physician and professor,
